Description: Renaissance Fairs are one of those things you either love or think are really strange. This one returns for its 35th year with a quirky mix of shows, crafts, rides, food, and other attractions - including a jousting match and live-action chess game featuring human "pieces." Discount tickets available online. The fair is open rain or shine, weekends and Labor Day through Sept. 23.
